What does erase iPhone do on iCloud?

Erasing an iPhone on iCloud permanently erases all your data and settings from the device. It deletes all content, including songs, movies, TV shows, photos, emails, contacts, and calendar appointments from the device and from iCloud.

It also removes the phone from your iCloud account and deactivates the Find My iPhone feature. Erasing your iPhone on iCloud is important if you plan on selling or donating your device to someone else, as it ensures that all your personal data is removed and can’t be accessed without your password.

Does deleting iPhone delete everything iCloud?

No, deleting an iPhone does not delete everything from iCloud, as an iCloud backup is separate from the device. An iCloud backup stores a wide range of data, including photos, videos, device settings, app data, messages, and more.

As long as the device is connected to the internet, the data associated with that device will be backed up automatically. If you delete an iPhone, the data in the iCloud backup will still be there. However, if you would like to delete the data in the iCloud backup, that can be done manually.

To delete your iPhone device backup from iCloud, you can go to iCloud settings on a device that shares your Apple ID, select “Manage Storage,” select “Backups,” choose the device that you want to delete, and then select “Delete Backup.” After doing this, your iCloud backup will be deleted, but it will not affect the data associated with other devices.

Does erasing your iPhone delete photos?

Yes, erasing your iPhone will delete the photos you have stored on it. When you erase your iPhone, all of the data that is currently stored on the device – including photos – is removed and is not recoverable.

Additionally, erasing your iPhone will reset it to factory settings, which means that any personal settings or customizations you may have made to your phone will also be wiped away. To ensure that your photos are not lost, you should regularly make a backup of your photos to either a computer, external hard drive, or cloud storage.

That way, if you ever do decide to erase your iPhone, your photos will still remain safe and secure.

Does removing a device from iCloud delete everything?

No, removing a device from iCloud does not delete everything associated with it. Removing a device from iCloud will not delete any data that is stored on that device, but it will prevent you from accessing any additional iCloud services from that device.

Some features that may be affected by removing a device from iCloud include Find My iPhone, Backup & Restore, and Shared Photo Streams. Furthermore, if you reconnect the device to iCloud, you may be able to re-instate those features.

However, it is important to note that any data from those features may not be fully recoverable. It is also important to realize that removing a device from iCloud does not delete any associated Apple IDs and passwords.
